New Cat dozer

Caterpillar’s new D9 dozer replaces the D9T and is said to lower overall costs per unit of material moved by up to 3%. Thanks to a new torque converter with stator clutch, the new D9 is also said to be 5% more fuel efficient, with maintenance and repair costs reduced by as much as 4% partly thanks to a newly integrated AutoLube system and extended filter change intervals

Powered by the tried and tested, Stage 5 emissions-compliant Cat C18 engine with 440hp (net), the new D9 dozer has an operating weight of 49,988kg; its Semi-Universal blade boasts a capacity of 13.6 cubic metres, while the Universal blade ups capacity to 16.6 cubic metres. The suspended undercarriage delivers more track contact with the ground for less slippage and greater productivity. A wide range of blades and attachments make the D9 suitable for dozing, site maintenance, fleet support and ripping.
